We offer lingual braces from the German company 3M INCOGNITO which fit on the inside of your teeth, completely out of sight. These braces are fixed and are custom-made to fit comfortably. No one will know you have braces unless you tell them!
Lingual braces offer all the benefits of fixed metal braces but are completely invisible when you smile. Lingual braces are fully customised to your teeth, ensuring a perfect fit that’s both comfortable and discreet.
Why choose Incognito?
- Invisible when you smile
- Fully customisable so can correct a variety of case types
- As they are fixed, they are always working
- Combines CAD/CAM technology so the brackets are perfectly shaped to your teeth
What does the treatment involve?
We will need to first check your oral health before we start your orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth and gums are essential for an effective treatment. We will carry out any x-rays and scans we need to get a clear idea of how your teeth are aligned and if there are any concerns that may affect your treatment.
We will take impressions of your teeth and use these to collect measurements of your smile. These impressions are sent to a laboratory which uses CAD/CAM technology to craft fully bespoke brackets and wires. When these are sent to us, we invite you back for your fitting. The braces are fixed with a cement that we can remove when the treatment has finished. Once fully fitted, we give you advice and guidance on how to maintain your oral health.
It’s important to keep your brace as clean as possible throughout the treatment. That means brushing after meals and making sure the brackets are clear of food debris.
When your treatment finishes, we’ll take your impressions again so we can create a custom-made retainer. You’ll need to have a fixed metal retainer wire at the back of your front teeth and to wear the retainer at night to prevent your teeth from moving back into their original position and to give them time to stabilise.
